I became a financial advisor in sunny Riverside, California with the intention of providing pre-retirees with the education and tools they need to accumulate, preserve, and distribute their money as efficiently as possible. I specialize in showing pre-retirees how to build systematized processes around their money that allows them to confidently spend their hard-earned savings.
In addition, I have a knack for "prioritizing the small details" and a true passion for financial planning during rather unexpected life events such as inheritance situations, business sales, and grey-divorce.
I am married to my lovely wife Courtney, I have a 12-year-old stepdaughter Remedy, and a 4-year-old son Walker!
When I'm not obsessing over learning more about my profession… I'm often driving around Orange County for volley ball tournaments with the kids, being bad at golf somewhere, tuna fishing off the coast of CA, drumming, or in the weight room!
Favorite Financial Tip
"Every so often, check your current cable provider's new promotions. Many times providers start charging you more and more after the first 12 months or so of being a customer (thanks for being loyal).
Sometimes you can cancel your current arrangement and sign up for their new promotion at a lower rate, because they would rather have you stay than switch.
All you have to do is call and ask! Although, you should always make sure they won't charge you to cancel and re-up before cancelling anything.
With the adoption of "apps", you can also ask them if you can keep one main cable box or DVR and simply download your cable provider's app on your TV and/or smart devices. Then simply log-in to view your same cable TV subscription! This eliminates those extra "lease" payments for renting their equipment!
You can possibly save quite a bit of money each month doing these little things and use that savings for something that will improve your family's future!"
